The mum of a ‘gender non-conforming child’ is selling fake ‘extra-small’ penises for transgender kids under the age of five.
‘The Teeny Tiny’ silicone packers can be worn by children who identify or express themselves as male to give the appearance of a bulge.
Available ‘circumcised’ and in several colours – including cashew, caramel and hazelnut – they are on sale alongside bigger packers that are targeted at kids aged between five and eight.
The items, classified as ‘extra-small’, are among a number of children’s products related to gender expression available via the website, TransKids.biz .

It adds: “The Model E is handmade by an artisan who has be developing StPs for adults for a few years now.
“They developed the Model E when we asked them to PLEASE make a device that younger folks could use and we are thrilled with this!”
The “discreet” products are on sale for $55 (£41). They are said to be simple to clean, with “body-safe” and “non-porous” material.
Another ‘Stand-to-Pee’ device for sale doesn’t resemble a penis. Instead, it is blue, rigid and can be used by people of all body types and ages.
“Just press the wide end up to a vulva, tilt the other end down, relax, and pee!”, reads a post on the site, which was set up two years ago.
It suggests that users practice in the shower first.
The site also offers a number of books, as well as small packer holders, which are available in Ninja Turtles and Superheroes designs.
A post about the holders describes how they have magnets that fasten around the waistband of children’s underwear, keeping them in place.
It claims they are “super easy” to use.
The kid-sized packer holders were made to be used with the extra-small silicone packers, which can be worn by kids under the age of five.
The site explains that although many transgender boys don’t start wearing packers until they are a bit older, “sometimes young kids want to have package”.
It adds: “So we convinced our friends who make our Archer Silicone Packers to make a mini version for young and/or smaller kids.”
It specifies the sizes of the 100 per cent silicone packers, called the ‘The Teeny Tiny’ and ‘The Mini’ (a “pretty good size” for five to eight year olds).
Meanwhile, it is 1″ for ‘The Teeny Tiny’.
The site has come under fire on social media this week, with one furious Facebook user slamming the products as “disgusting”.
Another user claimed: “Children should never be sexualized, and need to go through the hormones and associated emotional and mental growth that naturally occurs.”
However, the site describes itself as a “space dedicated to providing young folks with gender expression gear and resources”.
It adds that Searah, from Chicago in Illinois, US, spent years of helping adults “find high-quality expression gear” before the site was launched.
The mum, who has a ‘gender non-conforming child’ herself, also runs the site FtM Essentials and is the founder of Chicago’s Early to Bed sex shop.
She told Mirror Online: “TransKids is a business that grew out of multiple requests from loving parents of younger trans kids who wanted gender expression gear for their children.
“All of these products are made and sold with the sole purpose of helping young trans folks feel embodied in their gender.
“We also aim to be a safe place where parents can get information and ask questions from people who will be supportive and understanding of what it is like to parent gender non-conforming kids.”
